This green beetle was just hanging around on a door near my apartment in the middle of the night.
It is always much nicer when functional design adds creative elements as well.
This poor film-based shop has seen much better days.
I just liked the combination of graffiti, age and dappled sunlight on this old service door.
A nice sign for some bike parking in my neighbourhood here in Japan.
For those who have a sudden urge to eat chicken and eel at the same time, here you go!
I do often post on Flickr, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Google+ but for those of you who do come and visit my site on a regular basis I thought that I should post some photos from June and July.
I tend to pick up photography on occasion and go with it for a while, often as seasons change (for spring blossoms or fall leaves) and when I go travelling, but sometimes I just take it up just for the sake of enjoying the medium. I am fond of a casual snapshot style that grabs moments of my daily life or of things that appear to me. Lately I have really been into casual snapshots both with my Fujifilm Finepix X100 and my Canon EOS 5D Mark II. I also grab pictures with my iPhone when out on rides but I really do prefer to use one of my other cameras when I have a chance.
I hope that you will enjoy this small collection of recent photos!
